“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.”
If you think the promise of peace means that things will get better in the outside world, you’re missing the promise. The peace comes from the inside, not as a result of things from the outside. It comes from God, and it is placed directly into your heart. He doesn’t say he’ll give you peace by stopping all the conflict and chaos in your life – in fact he promises that you will have conflict and chaos in your life – but what he promises is peace in the midst of all that chaos.
